"Remember Manchester next weekend for the First Rugby League Test!
How exciting!
I decided to use some of my birthday money to stay in a hotel in Manchester instead of a hostel.
It is going to cost me £90.00 for the night including a full buffet breakfast and late checkout!
Why not treat myself - it will be my birthday!

This magnificent Grade II listed, Victorian hotel is owned by the Principal Hotel group, who have maintained its unquestionable beauty and charm as one of central Manchester's most notable and famous landmarks.

Situated in a prime location on Oxford Road near Manchester's top attractions (such as the Bridgewater Hall and the Palace Theatre), the hotel has a stunning marble and smoked glass interior to match its exterior.
